Nice snerp, he said he ALREADY got the 6600GT lol! BTW good choice, with a MAZE 4 on there you should be able to overclock it fairly well. I'd say 600/1000 should not be too out of reach and if you volt mod it, maybe even 700 core should be attainable, correct me if I'm wrong, I have never OCed a 6600 before and do not know how well they overclock.

err

Ok so my dad waited to buy it and now there sold out and waiting for more..

So now im looking around for anotheor card.. I founed a used msi 6800gt agp for $90 shipped.. Im thinking of going with it..

Just a little nervous, as i'v been reading people say "I'v overclocked my 6800gt to 400mhz core"

isn't the 6600gt already 500mhz core? But I know the 6800gt has to be faster..
